PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS - 2020/1

Module code: BMS2075

Module Overview

The module aims to introduce performance analysis, with particular emphasis on team sports and match analysis. The underpinning rational for the use of systematic observation techniques in the analysis of sports performance is evaluated.
Furthermore, the use of analysis for physical and physiological metrics during training will be considered utilising micro technology sensors.

Module content

Indicative content includes:

1. The What? Why? Who? Where? When and How? Of Sports Performance Analysis.
2. The principles of observation, analysis and feedback in an embedded and objective way.
3. Notational analysis 1. What is it, how do we do it, how do we present it?
4. Notational analysis 2. Four methods to discuss.
5. Performance analysis technologies, setting and choosing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
6. Assessment Feedforward
7. Examples of current use and perception of the field amongst practitioners.
8. Guest session from practitioner
9. Presentation: assessment 1
10. The use of Global Positioning Systems to analysis physical performance.
11. Guest session from industry
12. Implementing the analysis: how do we influence coaching and training to influence performance.

Assessment pattern

Assessment type Unit of assessment Weighting
Oral exam or presentation Group Presentation (15 MINS) – Notation analysis 40
Coursework INDIVIDUAL GPS REPORT 60

Alternative Assessment

None. If students are not able to do the assessment at the initial date they will be able to do the same assessment at an alternative date.

Assessment Strategy

The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate that they have an understanding of the different components of performance analysis. The students are able apply their understanding of the methods and equipment to support performance and the coaching process. The assessments will include presentations and training reports that would replicate the role of a Performance Analyst in the ‘real world’.


Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:

A presentation of their notational analysis of a sporting event of their choice. Student will need to identify what notational methods they feel are suitable and provide a rational for their analysis as well as present their overall results. The presentation will be delivered in wk7.

and

Students will be required to produce a coach report from the analysis of the GPS data collected from a full training session. The report will be coach friendly, with an explanation of each metric with the rationale to its inclusion.
The report has to be submitted in wk11

Formative assessment and feedback of:

Prior to the assessments, lecture, practical and/or seminar time will be spent discussing the assignment and feedback process. In class tasks will reflect the work required for the assessment and students will receive feedback of their performance. The marking scheme will be specified and expectations discussed.

Students can obtain formative feedback from a variety of sources:

Verbal feedback from academics during practical’s
Verbal feedback following lectures or during tutorials
Students can arrange to meet with the academics on a one-to-one bases to receive feedback and ask further questions throughout the module.

Feedback to specific queries via email, with responses being made available to all via SurreyLearn or during tutorials as appropriate generic class feedback to practical reports.

Module aims

  • Demonstrate a critical understanding of research and theory relating to Sports Performance Analysis
  • To provide an understanding of the analysis techniques and relate them to practical sporting situations
  • Devise performance analysis systems by which sports performance can be observed and assessed
  • Develop graduate key skills in the following areas: personal attributes, communication, problem solving, research skills, planning and organisation, group work and IT and professional skills.

Methods of Teaching / Learning

The learning and teaching strategy is designed to include lectures, practical’s and seminars in order to develop subject specific knowledge and provide formative feedback, discussion and summative presentations and reports. Students will also be provided directed study, typically involving a weekly set of tasks on SurreyLearn and/or additional reading.

The learning and teaching methods include:
• Lectures (20 hours)
• Seminars/tutorials (6 hours)
• Practical (6 hours)


Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
